2What is thermally treated timber (Heat treated)?

Thermo wood cladding is produced by heat treating Finnish grown pine and spruce to temperatures in excess of 200 degrees centigrade. During the heat treatment, chemical and structural changes occur within the timber which alter and improve some of its basic characteristics. The resulting product is an altogether more durable and stable timber, an ideal cladding material for use in exposed areas such as external walls.


The colour of Thermo treated-D (pine) is affected by the treatment temperature and time. The higher the temperature the darker the appearance.

60 year service life

Uncoated ThermoWood-D (pine) exterior cladding can provide a 60-year desired service life. This calculation is based on a number of conditions including: the quality of the workmanship at the time of installation and the exposure of cladding to the weather including location, elevation and design. If coated, over the life of the product, ThermoWood-D will have a 60-year desired service life, providing the coating is maintained in-line with the coating manufacturer recommendations over the service life of the product*.


The timber used to produce Thermally treated timber is grown in Finnish forests which are fully certified under the Finnish Forestry Certification System and Pan European Forestry Certification. As such you can be sure ThermoWood® is sourced from well managed and sustainable forests. The heat treatment process requires no chemical additives. The improved performance is achieved simply by the controlled application of heat and steam.
3What is the legal towing dimensions in the UK?
Towing weight and width limits.
Most cars have a maximum weight they can tow. It’s usually listed in the handbook or specification sheet.
Alternatively the vehicle’s ‘gross train weight’ may be listed on the vehicle identification number (VIN) plate on the car. This is normally under the bonnet or inside the driver’s door.
The gross train weight is the weight of the fully-loaded car plus fully-loaded trailer and must not be exceeded.
If your VIN plate doesn’t list a train weight, you should not use your vehicle for towing.

Width and length

The maximum trailer width for any towing vehicle is 2.55 metres. The maximum length for a trailer towed by a vehicle weighing up to 3,500kg is 7 metres. This length does not include the A Frame.
